Fuck it, I’m just gonna masturbate.
Sometimes we undress our books…
"oh my god you’re drawing his crotch, you pervert!"
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG IN HUMAN BODY

LET. ME. DRAW
same thing with boobs like seriously “haha what is THAT?” stfu u know what it is its a fucking boob and they are a part of anatomy. im not going to exclude the boob just to make you comfortable. ur an immature dick. leave .
It’s a bit unfair to compare something life threatening to something not immediately life threatening.
Also, psychiatric care is really just a nice way of saying, “mind-altering drugs”.
Not life threatening? You’ve clearly never experienced or known someone with a severe mental illness. Up to 90% of people who commit suicide have a mental illness.
Eating disorders, mood disorders, anxiety and self harm have many life threatening effects on the body, e.g. malnutrition, gastrointestinal complications, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, risk of wounds becoming infected, nerve damage. People struggling to get the mental health care they need find themselves in ER’s, jail cells and psychiatric hospitals for their immediate safety.
The risk of this can be minimised with proper treatment, which can consist of medication but also includes psychotherapy, occupational and social work, emergency care and other treatments as appropriate for each patient.
Kidney patients can be kept alive on dialysis for years while awaiting a transplant.
Also, your “mind-altering drugs”? These are part of why I can go to school, have an internship, maintain friendships, and be a reasonably responsible family member. Meds are a complement to therapy and make it work better. Honestly, if I were not taking prescribed medication, I would probably be taking some “mind-altering drugs” that had worse side effects than dry mouth.
Mental illness is in part both caused and reflected by physical/chemical disturbances in the brain. In physical illness, medication is often used to aleviate symptoms or address causes. Psychotropic drugs do the same thing. They are a medical response to a medical problem.
People need to stop thinking mental illness isn’t serious
They also need to stop thinking psychiatric drugs are all useless.
Bolded for A+ commentary, this bullshit that physical medical issues are more valid than psychological medical issues needs to end now.
Also, depression raises the risk or osteoporosis, making even young adults exponentially more likely to get osteoporosis BECAUSE IT LITERALLY LOWERS YOUR BONE MASS.
Can we please stop acting like mental illness isn’t serious?
Can we please stop acting like mental illness is less valid than physical illness?
CAN WE PLEASE STOP ACTING LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS DOESN’T CAUSE DEATH AND SERIOUS PHYSICAL COMPLICATIONS?
CAN WE PLEASE STOP ACTING LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS IS ONLY IN THE BRAIN EVEN THOUGH IT SHOWS UP IN THE BODY?
CAN WE PLEASE STOP ACTING LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS DOESN’T REQUIRE TREATMENT?
CAN WE PLEASE JUST RECOGNIZE THAT MENTAL ILLNESS IS VERY REAL, AND SERIOUS, THAT NEEDS TREATMENT TO GET BETTER… AND STOP ACTING LIKE IT’S A COP-OUT (BECAUSE IT’S NOT).
Society literally pushes people to AVOID treatment (and use it only as a last resort), while we stress early intervention for physical illnesses - and then tells people they’re weak because it got worse because they didn’t seek treatment - even though all of science has proven it exists an REQUIRES TREATMENT TO GET BETTER.
All you people who think it’s not serious, who think it doesn’t need treatment, who think that therapy and medication are unnecessary… need to go do some damned research because your ignorance is an astounding example of societal BRAINWASHING.
Friendly reminder I almost died of paranoia, When I get in a really bad state my body shakes, I throw up and my heard pounds rapidly.
I had to go to the E.R, and when they couldn’t ‘find a cause’ for it they said I was faking it and sent me home.

And I am happy because I have 97 followers, thank you guys xx
This makes me so happy, and yet so sad.
He was smart, he was a writer (you could tell by his phrasing) and this is something he TRULY cares about. That boy has a heart and he cares. He sees the truth for what it is and he refuses to sit idly and watch as the youth of america just stumbles by.
BUT the teacher was done. She didn’t care. She was fed up.
BUT the students were uncaring, even laughing, as this young man walked out
BUT this video was put online to be deemed as a joke and embarrass that boy.
THAT is unexceptionable
THAT is not right.
If you are this young gentleman if you are his relative, or if you have ever done something similar.
I am so proud of you
To take your opinion and share. NOT ONCE did he threaten her, NOT ONCE did he raise his voice above a proper projection so that the class could hear his words NOT ONCE did he insult her in any means past how she was behaving with her job. He didn’t undermine her. He didn’t hurt her, and yet he gave his message and left in peace.
That makes him a true, undeniable, super hero in my eyes.
Thank you sir.
My mom, an elementary school teacher, clapped an applauded this boy when I showed this to her.
That boy is great
hot damn this kid knows where it’s at
Can we give this kid a medal?
I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school
It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own
If this gets some notes then I’ll make a colored version
thank fucking you. this defines me a few years ago really accurately
story time! At college some of us were talking about tattoos we want. Our teacher said “you don’t want to get a tattoo at eighteen because you might change your mind.” I said “I had to decide my entire career path when I was fourteen when I chose my GCSEs. I think I can decide on a bird on my wrist at eighteen.”
what’s really amazing to me is that people are so afraid of body hair on women that even in a shaving commercial they won’t show a hairy leg. they demonstrate the razor by shaving a hairless leg. they show their product being completely useless instead of showing leg hair. it’s just crazy
I will reblog this until my fingers bleed
or turn it into a fuCKing COMPETITION.
This mother fucking post. Thank you.
Hi, I'm Alex and I'm 16. I struggle with a very large number of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. I'm getting through it with the help of a few people that I trust and I know that I'll eventually be okay even thigh some days it doesn't feel like it. I don't know when I'll be okay, but someday I will be.
